Is it REALLY the last week of November!? Christmas is just around the corner and we are pretty excited about it around here :)
Sunday was Tate's first day at church. He did pretty good. I tried to time his feedings so that he would sleep during Primary but it didn't work. Michael ended up having to do Singing Time during Sr. Primary for me, so we'll have to work on that. It's good to know I have a back up though :)
Monday for Family Home Evening we put up our Christmas Tree. It's the same one we bought the year we got married and is only about 4 ft. tall but Collin didn't seem to care.
This year is going to be so much fun because Collin finally understands what's going on...to a certain degree. He gets sooooo excited when he sees lights or Christmas Trees so when we pulled ours out he was one happy boy. Then we brought out the train and put it around the tree! Yeah, we had a little trouble getting a certain someone to go to bed that night ;)
I love the picture above on the right. When I plugged the tree in, Collin reacted with an "ah" like we expected, but then he went up to the tree and was trying to blow the lights out like a candle.
Tate was good and just hung out watching everything around him. Look at those cheeks! That's one boy who LOVES to eat!
And our Christmas kick off wouldn't be complete without grandma's reindeer!
We thought about ending the night with hot chocolate and a classic Christmas movie, but trying to decorate a tree, even a 4 ft one, with a 2 yr old who was taking stuff OFF the tree as fast as we could put it on, and a 3 week old who thinks he needs to be fed every 10 min., it actually took us longer than expected. Before we knew it, it was 9:30! And sugar and Collin right before bed don't exactly mix well :) So, hot cocoa and a movie will just have to be for another night.
